Free CultureSounds Of Northen Capital
For six years of its existance the artists' colony in the building at 10 Pushkinskaya Street won the udisputable
reputation of the visual arts center with its countless galleries and ateliers. It is less known, however, that
the famous building also houses probably half of St. Petersburg's musical underground. I'm an old hand in the
building and know most of the musicians; even for me their sheer number was straggering. Some, like Aquarium,
Igry or Dva Samolyota have their rehearsal space or studious here. Others, like Sankt Peterburg, Sergey Kuryokhin
and NOM, sympathize with the cause, are frequent guests and performers here and just love this mecca of contempoprary art.
Stylistic range of music recorded on this CDs is enormous: from rock mainstream of Nautilus to post-punk of Bondzinski;
from flamboyant dance rhythms of Prepinaki and Dva Samolyota to somewhat sombre avantgarde of ZGA; from nostalgic
Duby-Koldyny to post-modernist Kolibri; from naked sincerity of DDT to Kuryokhin's multilayered sarcasm. All of this
is Pushkinskaya #150; the genuine 21st Century Ark.
